In conjunction with the exhibition “Overlapping Realms: Arts of the Islamic World and India, 900-1900,” the Sackler Museum is offering a workshop in Islamic art for children ages 9 to 12. Children will learn to recognize several elements of design in Islamic art including tessellations, linear repeat patterns, and arabesques. The workshop will include a guided look at the artworks in the exhibition, gallery activities, and a hands-on art project to take home. The same workshop will be repeated each Sunday, so please register for only one.
The workshops take place March 4, 11, and 18 at the Arthur M. Sackler Museum, 485 Broadway, Cambridge, from 1:30 to 2:45 p.m. The cost of a workshop is $10 per child, $8 per member child. Pre-registration and pre-payment are required. For registration and information, call (617) 496-8576. Or send a check, payable to the Harvard University Art Museums, to the Public Education Department, Harvard University Art Museums, 32 Quincy St., Cambridge, MA 02138.
